Famous liberal filmmaker Michael Moore has announced he will be releasing his next project today, at a screening in New York City. The surprise film, titled Michael Moore in Trumpland, hits theaters on October 19th.
Yes, some rumors may be true. I “might” be putting the finishing touches on an “October Surprise” for this election. Then again…

The IFC Center in New York describes the film as such: “See the film Ohio Republicans tried to shut down. Oscar-winner Michael Moore dives right into hostile territory with his daring and hilarious one-man show, deep in the heart of TrumpLand in the weeks before the 2016 election.”
Little is known about the film as of yet, but it appears to be a one-man show that Moore performed deep in red territory, as per the Gothamist.
I’ve written a one-man show about this crazy Presidential race and was planning to perform it live — and film it — on Oct 7th in Newark, Ohio, the seat of Licking County, right in the heart of Trump Country. My producers flew there on September 15th and negotiated the rental and use of the historic Midland Theater in downtown Newark. Their staff greeted us with open arms and happily agreed to let me book my show. My team then returned to NYC and we set about preparing the shoot and putting the final touches on the production.
Moore, famed for his hit films Bowling For Columbine, Fahrenheit 9/11, Sicko, and Where To Invade Next, is sure to have cooked up another hit. If you live in New York, you can hit up the IFC Center and see it for free!
